2: My name is Jane Cummings. I am the Department Head of Foreign Languages, K-12 for the Somerville Public Schools. I have taught Spanish at Somerville High School for 24 years. I live in Arlington with my husband and 3 children. I have a yellow lab that I absolutely adore. In the summers I spend time with my family in Old Orchard Beach Maine. I like to read, watch movies, and take long walks.
5: My name is Janelle Linskey. I grew up in Somerville but now I live in Woburn with my husband Jim and my dog Marley. I went to Tufts University for undergraduate and Boston College for my Master’s Degree. I am the school adjustment counselor at the Capuano School. I also work with a few students at the Winter Hill School on Tuesday mornings. I love to go out to dinner and a movie with my husband, go jogging with my dog, and go to the beach with my friends in the summer.

9: Sabrina Trinca | My name is Sabrina Trinca and I am from Oneida, New York. I come from a very big Italian family. My parents are both from Sicily and moved to the United States in the late 1960’s. My mother, Antonina, is a fabulous woman who I look up to. My father, Bartolo, is your typical Italian father who all the boys used to be scared of (and still are). Alessandro, my oldest brother, and Gianpiero, who is also older than me, are my best friends. I must include my grandmother, Francesca, as she is like another mother, but shorter. I will soon be part of a bigger family as I am going to marry my fiancé, Thomas, in August. Family, to me, is one of the most important things in life.

11: Michelle Perry I’ve been the reading teacher at the Winter Hill Community School for the past five years. Prior to this position I taught first grade at the Kennedy School and it was hard to leave my friends and students there. I really love teaching reading and language arts so this current job is just right for me. The staff and students at the Winter Hill are wonderful.
13: My name is Christine Ferrier. I was born and raised in Staten Island, New York. I attended Providence College for my undergraduate studies. After college, I moved to Boston to attend graduate school at Lesley University. I really enjoyed living in Boston and decided to stay. I have been teaching for the past eight years. Six of these years have been in kindergarten. I started working at the Capuano School in 2007. I am the integrated kindergarten teacher at the Capuano School. My class is made up of students with and without disabilities.

16: LENNY & SQUIGGY | ROSIE
17: HI! I’m Rosie and I’m gorgeous! I sleep most of the day and when I’m not sleeping, I harass my brothers, Lenny and Squiggy. They are cats! YUK! I like to chase them around the house and scare them. My birthday is coming up real soon! I’m going to be 3. I hope my mom gets me some Bill-Jacs, they are my favorite. They taste even better than my brothers! I love the snow and rain. Anytime I can get wet and muddy is the best. I love to swim in the lake all summer long. The cats can’t go in the lake so it makes it even better! I don’t have to “be nice” or “go easy” when I am swimming. I am free to do what I want, except for the rope that keeps me from running away. | Sandra Dumas
18: I was born in Angola a few years ago. I love my family. I have a daughter and a son. My daughter has a little girl that I adore. I spend my free time with my grand-daughter. | This is my Grand daughter
